  1. Shortwave Infrared Cameras For High-Temperature Manufacturing And R&D Processes
    7/25/2019

    Shortwave infrared (SWIR) cameras are sensitive to shorter IR wavelengths between visible light and 3 µm. With the addition of temperature measurement capabilities, SWIR cameras offer a win-win for anyone concerned with thermal analysis of high temperature materials or processes.

  2. CNC Machining: Designing For Speed
    7/23/2019

    Even 3D printing relies on and owes its existence to machining. This white paper talks about the continuous importance of CNC machining, how to optimize parts for machining, and things to look for in a machining partner.

  3. Designing For Sheet Metal Fabrication
    7/23/2019

    This white paper covers how sheet metal is used today, how to use it in designing and developing parts, and how to choose the best sheet metal fabrication technique for each application.

  4. Four Reasons Thermal Cameras Can Improve Automatic Emergency Braking And Save Lives
    7/17/2019

    The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) estimates 6,200 pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents in the U.S. in 2018, the highest total since 1990. The GHSA also found that, during the past 10 years, nighttime crashes accounted for more than 90 percent of the increase in pedestrian deaths.

  7. Fiber Optic Image Bundles Provide A Solution When High Tech Approaches Fail
    7/16/2019

    Wound Fiber Bundles offer a passive way to transfer images from remote locations even when power isn’t available. The technology can be used in extreme environments and to view hard-to-access areas.

  8. Optical Components For SWIR Imaging
    7/8/2019

    This application note provides information on the benefits of SWIR imaging in harsh or low-light level conditions, and PG&O's capabilities in manufacturing optical components for SWIR imaging.

  9. SWIR For Hot-End Glass Bottle Defect Inspection And Imaging
    7/5/2019

    Manufacturers of glass hollowware have long sought a way to pick out defective product at the hot end of their process, while the pieces are still above 200ºC. At that glass inspection stage, rejects are identified, then shunted aside and reprocessed efficiently, greatly reducing scrap.
